Self-taught artist Gavin Worth creates sculptures that look like line drawings but are crafted from metal wire. His latest work, “Thirst,” is particularly ingenious: the sculpture reveals two separate images depending on viewing angle (see photos and video below). “Thirst” is on public display in Matha, France.
By bending black wire into something of freestanding line drawings, I create sculptures that engage the viewer by involving them in their subtle changes. When the light in the room shifts, so does the mood of the piece. A breeze might softly move an arm. My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful.
